KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas Republicans in the House of Representatives have launched an online center for coronavirus news.

Speaker Ron Ryckman (R-Olathe), Majority Leader Dan Hawkins (R-Wichita), and Speaker Pro Tem Blaine Finch (R-Ottawa) announced on Sunday the Kansas Coronavirus Resource Center, called Kansas Together.

Its goal is to give Kansans a “central location” for information about the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The goal of Kansas Together is to centralize information from state agencies, the federal government, and crucial industries and place it in one easy to find location,” Ryckman said in the statement. “To that end, House leadership is in constant communication with the executive branch at both the state and federal level, the Kansas federal delegation, local units of government, and industry leaders across our state.”

Finch said that as elected leaders, they have a responsibility to “provide certainty.”

“One way we can accomplish this is by ensuring that Kansans have the information they need when they need it,” Finch said in the release. “Today’s launch is just the first step as we continue to find new ways to get people the information they need.”

The website provides information about unemployment benefits, education and health care, among other resources. For more information, visit
